Next FaceBook Live Event:
Join Carol, live! Friday July 3, 2020 at 6:30 pm for our next FaceBook Live event.
Curious about our red tags? We are now showing a number with each item during the live shopping, and since we are Quilt Corral, and both Carol and Barb grew up around cows we thought it would be fun to use cow tags as our numbers!
Each time we learn a little more about the best way to conduct these live events.
Here are a few tips based on our experiences so far:
- Go to the live event on our Facebook page. Then click either interested or going. That way you will get a reminder.
- Just prior to the event we will post a list of featured items on the home page of our website. You may find it helpful to print the list prior to the start of the event.
- During the event purchase items by commenting "Sold" along with the number Carol shows with the item.
- With the first item you purchase tell us in a comment if you will pick up or would like it shipped.
- If it is the first time you have purchased from us during a FaceBook live event please send us a FaceBook message with your email address.
- If you require shipping, send us a FaceBook message with your email address, shipping address and phone number.
- After the event we will email an invoice for the items you commented sold on. Once the invoice has been paid, we will ship the items. It generally takes a few days to get these orders processed and to the post office.
See you on July 3rd!
Mask making continues!
We have just learned about a washable, high efficiency interfacing-like product by Mountain Mist for making either removable mask filters or for making the lining in masks. This item ships the middle of July so we are taking pre-orders at this time. The price is $18.99 and contains enough product to make 108 masks. Preorder here.
Virtual Quilt Market
We really love going to International Quilt Market each spring, so we were sad when this year's event was cancelled. However, we had the opportunity to attend virtual classes and demos where we learned about new products and ideas. We'll be sharing items in our newsletter as our selections arrive in the shop.
First item from Market finds:
The Ultimate Quilt 'n Stitch Presser Foot
Perfect for stitching parallel lines and grids. The adjustable guide has clearly marked measurements so you can stitch uniformly spaced lines of quilting. Fits low shank machines or use an adapter from your specific sewing machine manufacturer.
New Fabrics are on the way!
Backyard Blooms by Windham is a gorgeous group of florals, diagonal plaids and colorful hens. This collection is due in the shop in July.
Expected this week: Deer Christmas by Urban Chiks for Moda. This fun Christmas collection features retro colors of mint green, turquoise, pink and yellow.
Also coming soon: Deer Christmas kits from Moda - we only have 6 on order! These kits with pieced blocks and large fusible appliques always go fast, so if you want one call Carol right away to reserve yours! The price is $159.99.
Kits featuring Barb's Tiara fabric collection. Both these quilts were in recent issues of quilting magazines (the magazine is included in the kit.) They are Accuquilt friendly!
Cut Glass Echos Kit as shown on Fons and Porter Love of Quilting on PBS and featured in Love of Quilting Magazine. Shop here.
Criss Cross Applesauce kit uses all the prints in the collection and was featured in McCalls Quilting magazine. Shop here.

Classes are still on hold for now. Due to the smallness of our classroom we don't feel we can safely physical distance our students, so no classes for now.
The July retreat is a go!
We realize that things are changing daily regarding Covid-19. However, at this time the July retreat is a go! The dates are July 16-19, 2020. We will be following the Glenn County Health Department's Day Camp guidelines for physical distancing. This event is currently sold out.
The 2020 Quilt Rush shop hop has been postponed, however we do have Quilt Rush bags - they may end up being collectors items! Shop here.
Keep on Stitchin!
Carol and Barb
